I started watching it on YouTube a week or two ago and finished all 42 episodes in 3 days. I LOVE Animated now. At first, I though Animated was eh. Although, the character's designs looked interesting so I decided to watch the first 3 episodes of Animated. I did, then 2-3 weeks later, decided to watch the whole series. On to the point: I like Animated because of the characters, story, humor, G1 references and because of it's toy line. A lot of the figures are accurate to their on-screen counterparts, which suprised me when I got my first couple of Animated figures.
